China Bans NBA, Winnie the Pooh, and South Park

Panda pandering is nothing new as of late. Marvel changed the classic Iron Man Villain The Mandarin to not offend the Chinese market. The Ancient One in Doctor Strange is originally from Tibet, which China does not recognize, so he was change to a woman of Celtic heritage. Star Wars has obviously placed more Chinese characters into the series to help gain their market as well. It is a sure fact that China has been affecting the creativity and writing of American produced media for sometime now.

But lately, China’s control of western media has become more severe, with bans of certain medias and even making American based companies make decisions based on the market.
